The former defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg has called into question the Suitability of the Minister-President of Bavaria, Markus Söder, as CSU party Chairman. “The CSU needs to make sure how viable this solution is, and the extent to which the new party Chairman is suitable for this great task,” said Guttenberg, the Online service of the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung”. “The Format of a Franz Josef Strauss, or Theo Waigels it is not enough yet. The but he must, if he does not want to make the CSU to be a regional party.”

It should be measured”, the blame for the bad result at the state election only Horst Seehofer, bitch,” said Guttenberg. It is not sufficient to work around the issue of Migration with a clumsy rhetoric. “A new Chairman must also embody the national and international Dimension of the issue.” Especially the new party Chairman would have to be much more of a presence in Berlin, where the decisions are made.

Horst Seehofer’s last day as CSU-Chairman: “So much friendship was never”


The CSU Board of Directors had nominated Söder on Monday, as expected, unanimously as the successor of Seehofer for the Post of party chief. Guttenberg said it case difficult for him, Söder, “the transformation from the skilful, but the brute power of a politician to a humble team player to take off”. He can see that Söder try “recently, a conciliatory tone of voice”. “Only A large party Chairman also has the gift of empathy. That was in the last 20 years, not just the most outstanding feature of Markus Söder.”

Guttenberg plans according to their own words, not a return to German politics. “I’m a politically-thinking, critical party member. And I am willing to me at a point or another, with my paltry experience. But there is more any ambitions.” The CSU-man had resigned in 2011 as Minister of defence, after he had been deprived of because of a plagiarism affair, the doctor title but.
